Princess Bess Gets Dressed by Margery Cuyler, illustrated by Heather Maione (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2009)
Princess Bess is a fashionable little girl with a packed schedule for the day - including tea with the king and queen, ballet class, jousting, art, picnic lunch with the prince, and more. She is asked each day what she would really like to wear, but Princess Bess keeps her favorite clothes a secret. She changes outfits constantly throughout the day - a new one for each activity. But at the end of the day, she reveals that despite all the bustling activity and beautiful clothes of the day, what she really enjoys wearing best is really quite simple. Share this one with little princesses and preschool fashionistas.
